2012 Donate to the Operation Christmas Child Program

This is the second year we have donated to Samaritan's Purse www.samaritanspurse.ca for the Operation Christmas Child program. Here was last year's post talking about what we put in the box http://www.chromiloamin.com/2011/11/donate-to-operation-christmas-child.htm. It's always a worthwhile cause to donate instead of just buying family gifts during Christmas. Don't know about you but that always stresses us out.

We will drop off one shoebox filled with toys, clothes, and school supplies for a 2-4 year old girl. As usual, we have also included a monetary donation on top of the $7 fee to cover shipment charges for the shoebox. Here are the items my wife was able to cram into the box this year. Can I just publicly say that she is awesome at all this especially under pressure. It's too bad the kids were already asleep when we put this together because they would have enjoyed preparing the gift box which contains:

- Lion plush toy
- Toothbrushes
- Bars of soap
- Crayons…

4Cats Arts Studio Hosts Birthday Parties

I didn't know arts & crafts for a kid's birthday party could be so much fun. That's what my kid tells me after attending a friend's birthday at 4Cats Arts Studio in Whiterock. For activities, the kids colored with crayons and molded clay into picture frames that they later took home with them (see Star Wars Jedi characters Master Yoda and Luke Skywalker masterpieces). This was followed by healthy snacks which was all part of the package from 3:30pm-5pm. And here is a famous quote from Yoda if you are looking to try out the studio for your next birthday party:

"Do or do not. There is no try."
